Larson to bow out of Iowa Senate

Larson to bow out of Iowa Senate

Buh-bye, Chuckie:

Sen. Chuck Larson, R-Cedar Rapids, announced this morning he will not seek re-election in 2006.

Larson, 37, cited growing responsibilities in his job as general counsel for the ESCO Group, including the possibility of working overseas.

Larson, who represents Senate 19, which includes parts of southeast and northeast Cedar Rapids, was first elected to the Iowa Legislature in 1992.

And that year I knocked n every door in Hiawatha with our candidate, trying to stop him.

Good riddance but I fear we haven't seen the last of Chuckie... in the mean time best wishes to Rob Hogg, the Dem in this race.
